Come join us on this Icon-ic flight through the Italian Alps, where we’ll be visiting - and landing on - some famous Italian lakes like Lago Maggiore, Lago di Lugano and Lago di Como.
After our visit to these three beautiful lakes we’ll continue our journey eastwards through the Valtellina valley, followed by a northwards route to Bormio.
Once there, pilots will be required to use all of their piloting skills to do a challenging ascent to our final destination: Lago di Cancano.
For those looking for an extension to their Italian Alps visit, you can continue along (and cross the Swiss border) the flight route towards Lago Bianco (Switzerland), and finally Sankt Moritz.
We will be using the Icon A5 for this flight.
Although we will use the “All player” setting, using live weather is greatly encouraged. If conditions deteriorate during flight we will switch to broken clouds or high clouds.
Please load your aircraft 15 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.
Around 5 minutes prior to take off begin taxiing to the active runway (will be announced). We will do a parallel start and after that start departing to the east.
We will use live weather. However, if conditions are unfavorable, we will select a weather preset with the same UTC time.
Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.
|Live traffic||As desired|
To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.
It is advised in this flight to turn off both aircraft collisions and terrain collisions. If you do crash, you can use “slew” mode to join the pack. If the pack will be too scattered before the first stop, we will use slew on a defined point to regroup.
